Tofu Festival? More like Nofu Festival

Otius Gojius | Aug 19, 2007 11:59 PM

I had fun Sunday, but didn't they used to have a lot of tofu? Why don't they just call it Thai Food Festival as 80% of the food vendors were selling Thai BBQ chicken or pad thai w/ tofu. I had good tofu curry, (it was mildly spiced) and excellent okonomiyaki. Bad run in with Japanese food being sold by "another nationality" (GF says I'm a bigot) girl at counter was unhelpful, verbally incommunicative, gave me different food from what I had to point at and when I insisted she give me what I wanted, she put one-half teaspoon in my bowl. Shame because it was good, too.

I missed the tofu tostada and tofu desserts.

New layout squeezes everyone into one street making cutting in line very easy as the lines were all screwed up, hard to tell what I was waiting for as people just stepped in front of me handing scrip to food servers.

It was still fun, a nice community event weather okay nice breeze, not as intensely hot as years past. The parade was good and the big nebuta float from Aomori was stunning.

So who found all the tofu and liked it more than me?
